I got chills reading that.  Go for it, Jeff!

The Pub / Win7 taskbar icon tabs
« on: December 03, 2010, 09:40:13 PM »
I just got a new laptop with Win7 and I'm working on learning its particulars.  Originally, if I had a program like Firefox (for example)open with multiple tabs open in it, the taskbar icon for it would show multiple tabs on the icon and allow me to preview what each one was.  Somehow I turned that off.  Anybody know how I can get it back?

Welcome to the club!  Take your airlock off and temporarily put a piece of foil over the top of the carboy.  Foil is sanitary right off the roll, so you'll be good to go.  Wash your airlock and sanitize it, then replace it.  To prevent it in the future, either use a bigger fermenter or a blowoff tube.  See for details.

First, ask yourself why you want to do a step mash...especially a protein rest at 122.  Are you using an undermodified malt?

Hulu has a few Food Network things.  I had DirecTV  out for a site go.  And for less than a year of Tivo I can buy a DVD recorder that uses RW disks.  That's likely what I'll do.

If I could watch Iron Chef America, Chopped, and Throwdown whenever I wanted to, I'd be a happy guy!  Those are what keep me from getting bored while I'm on my treadmill.

Ingredients / Re: Vanilla Beans

I usually use at least 2 of the other beans I've gotten.  I used 1 1/2 of these and it's almost too much.

AFAIK people who like to brew super clear lagers want to leave out most or all the trub.

Not necessarily....see

I have a DVD recorder at the moment, but I'm looking for a solution that doesn't require me to buy DVDs.  I do use the recorder for stuff I want to keep, but for everyday watch it once and delete it stuff it's not a good solution.  OTOH, that will take erasable DVDs.

I just sent my provider an email so we'll see what they say.  I'm kinda skeptical, though.

Well, Denny if you have an extra PC laying around you could install something like MythTV. All you would need to do is buy a tuner card and they're fairly cheap.

Yeah, that's something else I've considered, but a place to put it is the problem.  I have a pretty difficult set of circumstances to deal with, but I really appreciate all the suggestions.

Thanks, Ron, I've checked into that before but no service where I live.  Euge, I really don't want to pay a monthly fee like Tivo.  Yeah, I know I'm being difficult!

Ron, I can't get Comcast or anything but the cable I already have.  Not even decent satellite reception.  I guess what I really want is a digital version of my VHS decks.

So, still living in the past, we're a 2 VHS household. But that can't last forever, so I've been thinking DVR and I need some edumacation. We get our cable signal from a VERY small local co. called Countryvision run by a family out of their garage. No Comcast, no Dish Network, etc. We don't use a cable box, just the tuner on the TV. So, what are my options for a DVR in that situation? what have you got and how do you like it?
